Is the number of 144,000 a literal number of souls, or are they a special class of souls amoung the multitudes of souls to be in Heaven? After the flood, only 8 people survived that one....
...and is it good enough for us to not strive to BE one of the 144,000, but to just barely get inside the gates of Heaven? I heard a preacher one Sabbath say: " I don't care if I'm not a part of the 144,000, I just wanna get in" He may have been exhorting his sense of humor, but the desception is present in his statement. Often, satan will wrap his desceptions in humor, to get them past our inner securities, and we readily accept them while we laugh at them, all the while, not realizing that we've just been duped!
So, are we, or are we not to strive to be one of the 144,000 ???
Teresa, Ray, Benicio,
EGW: " But in the harvest of the world there will be no likeness between good and evil. The wicked will be gathered from the righteous, to trouble them no more forever. " 2SP p.249
When is the harvest of the world, is it durning the loud cry?
Do you believe the harvest for the world is before, during, or after the time of trouble?
These questions help me better understand what you believe, where you stand... Thank you... :)
Ray Phillips and Benicio just to clarify a bit, they will be NO TARES AFTER the purification of the church takes place and that is the one in Ezekiel 9,because the whole purpose of Ezekiel 9 is to separate the WHEAT(the ones who have been sealed by God) from the TARES(the ones who have not been sealed) hence AFTER that the church of God would have been Purified.
Okay you to is a Shepherd's Rod. And you tol Teresa that you are not a Davidian? WAW!!
Who are you calling a shepherds rod???
Accussing the brethren is a fruit of the enemy.
Please do not falsely label people as we are all brothers & sisters in Christ.
Thnak you:)....Now lets get back to the topic at hand.
Who are me to label people?
If it not tru, say it and we will go back to de topic.
When talk to people I like to know with how I'm talking To.
Benicio stop judging people and read for yourself ask the Holy Spirit to open your mind and heart so you can be able to discern spiritual things
YaYaYa with your Shepherd's Rod teaching.
I find you to be desrepected, people are ask you some question and you do not give back an answer. And you come with you WShepherd's Rod Bu!!!!!!!!!
Get real answer people question!
No Gabriel I have no problem. I now every thing of the Shepherd's Rod. I now how they think how they talk. Do you now how I now all of this? Because I whas one of them one time. But God has upon my eyes, and now I can see!
I hated with they use their taktike to convourte people on this side! Sense God has upon my eyes, I have made a promse to God, that I will expose them, and show them that what they are teaching is error!
Thank you sis Teresa. There are many people who say that I label every body as Shepher's Rod, the problem is I know them, and I has promse God that I will expose them.
